Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Silves, Portugal your home away from home

Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve, has evidence of settlements on the land reaching back to 1,000BC, and the old town is awash with fascinating sites from throughout the ages! Surrounded by rich colours of orange orchards and almond groves, the town of Silves is a sleepy town surrounded by the rolling foothills of the Monchique Mountains, perfect for an exploration and investigation of the Algarve.

Things to do on holiday in Silves, Portugal

Although many of the town’s most important historical remains were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake, the impressive sandstone Silves Castle remained strong, due to the huge Moorish walls which support it. Silves Castle is the largest castle in the Algarve, and is certainly among the most beautiful. The Museu Arqueologico has managed to collate and display various artefacts from throughout the town’s history, and pieced them together for visitors to get a clearer understanding of Silves’ history and influence. The Roman Ponte Romana and 13th Century Cathedral also make for interesting viewing if you have the time whilst staying in a Silves property.

Despite a huge amount being made out of Silves’ ancient heritage, there is much more to taking accommodation in Silves than touring historical sites. A Silves property or villa in Silves’ outskirts is the perfect base for golfing holidays to the Algarve or for exploration of the Algarve. Centrally located, accommodation in Silves can be used for holidays in the beach, in the Sierra de Monichique or exploring the large Algarve towns of Loule, Portimao, Albufeira or Lagoa. The famous Algarve beaches of Carvoeiro are just a 15 minute drive from self catering accommodation in Silves, with all their attractions and sports facilities.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta can all be reached very easily from a Silves villa too. There are public courses dotted across the countryside, so finding a round from Silves accommodation will not prove difficult.

Places to holiday in Silves, Portugal

Lagoa is only 8km from accommodation in Silves, and is one of the most picturesque towns you will be able to find in Portugal. Located at the summit of one of the coastal hills, Lagoa is also a magnificent base for golf and sightseeing, and the golden beaches of Ferragudo and Carvoeiro are just miles away.

Weather in Silves, Portugal

Summers in Silves are very warm, and Silves villas with pools are hugely sought after during June, July and August. Temperatures from October until April are cooler, but remain blissfully warm, with monthly averages staying between 15 and 22˚C, perfect for walking, golfing or cycling throughout the area.

Flights to Silves, Portugal

Located just 30 minutes from Faro Airport (FAO), a holiday villa in Silves is very easily reached. Faro receives multiple daily flights from across the UK, provided by a range of luxury or ‘no frills’ airlines. When you arrive in Faro, it is probably a good idea to take a hire car, not only to reach your accommodation in Silves, but also so that you can easily reach the beaches or attractions in the Silves area without having to rely on public transport, meaning you can get the most from the flexibility and space provided by taking a private Silves property for your holiday.

Fantastic villa in the hills

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa in August for just under 2 weeks and had a brilliant time. The whole family - from the youngest to the oldest - enjoyed their stay and were very sad to leave. From the start, the owner was very quick and responsive when booking which made the process extremely easy. No question was too much trouble. We were a group of 7 and the villa was extremely spacious. We hired a 9-seat minibus from the airport and were at the villa in approx 1 hour. The journey up the track from the main road took about 5 mins, however it was relatively easy even in the minibus. It helped that the directions provided were easy to follow and accurate. On arrival, it was spotless both inside and outside and matched the description given on this site. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is the added bonus of the large BBQ outside. Our children miss the pool the most, which was clean and very warm (without heating). The small separate paddling pool was perfect for our youngest to splash around in and he spent hours in it. The fence around the pool enabled us to securely close the pool area off when not in use but still allow them to play outside safely. Graham, the villa manager, was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He was easy to contact and very responsive - I sent him a text with a question and he phoned us back within 30 seconds! When not swimming in the pool, it was quick and easy to get to the local beaches, Slide and Splash (from memory, about 20-30 mins drive), Lagos, and all the major attractions. As the van hire we had didn't include an electronic toll device, we stayed off the A22 toll road and didn't have any problems with traffic - the non-toll road from the airport was easy to follow and the local attractions didn't require the use of the toll road. We ate out on one night and would recommend Restaurante O Barradas which is on the outskirts of Silves. As it was a hot, clear night, the outside eating area was amazing and they were very welcoming of children. In summary, we really enjoyed our stay in this Villa and would highly recommend it!
